Missing fisherman found alive after 17 nights in the Oregon wilderness

A missing fisherman has been found alive after spending 17 nights in the Oregon wilderness, according to police.

Harry Burleigh, from Roseburg, Oregon, was reported missing the evening of May 7 by his wife, Stacy, after he failed to return home from a camping trip in the Toketee area. Burleigh, 69, was originally due to arrive home the day before, according to a May 9 news release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

Police released this image of Burleigh when the search started.

Douglas County Search and Rescue found Burleigh’s vehicle near a lower trailhead that leads into Twin Lakes on May 8 and determined the fisherman may have tried to walk to Twin Lakes to fish before heading home, according to a previous news release.
The trail is in the Umpqua National Forest, which is nestled on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains, according to the National Park Service.
